A few good things on A but I'd much rather get down with B which is fun and a bit off the wall.

I think B is really good. I really like 70s sweet soul, there's not been enough of it in the cup this year.

B
the other list has higher highs, but is let down by a few bad calls. Still, tough draw.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A lot I like in both, but B in a close call.

I get where B is coming from, it still struggles to pick tracks that really wow with their individuality, but although it's tried and tested, it's very good for the most part. A seems to be losing its mojo.

Almost too close to call but in the middle of the night, heart racing, forced to choose, I suppose I have to go with B.

A is going the wrong way but B is improving. "Blood And Fire" clinches it.

A just looks that tiny bit classier to these eyes. Very close, tho' - some great choices on both.
